1. Does my shotgun require a break in?
Yes, most firearms will benefit from a good break-in period. When you receive your firearm: read your instruction manual for a good overview of the controls and other information, ensure your firearm is unloaded, disassemble your firearm, clean and properly lubricate it per the instructions, cycle the action a few times to ensure all parts are moving freely. Head to the range and run some high-quality ammunition through your firearm. Typically you will see performance and reliability become consistent after the first initial uses of the firearm. Clean and lubricate as needed during break-in.
Shotguns typically will require 50-100rds of ammunition, we recommend a heavy load of 1oz or heavier for break in.
